From Basic Culinary Techniques Every Cook Should Know:
Learning to cook well is not only an important, basic life skill, but something that can enhance your whole life. Cooking at home will save you money, improve your diet and health, and is great stress relief. Unfortunately, it’s a skill that isn’t as common as it once was since many of us eat out or eat pre-made and processed foods frequently.
It’s become a common misconception that cooking is difficult and even dangerous, that you need complicated equipment and a large kitchen, and that you will end up with a huge pile of dishes and a stove that needs to be scraped clean. This doesn’t have to the be the case at all. Cooking at its best is a simple and natural part of our lives.
Director Robert Rodriguez of Desperado and Sin City sums it up: You’ve got to eat for the rest of your life, so you might as well eat well.

From A Guy's Guide to Grilling:
It's a popular American suburban myth that men are born knowing how to grill. In popular culture such as novels and television, men are always shown standing around the barbecue grill, while women are usually in the kitchen whipping up the side dishes. If a man's worth is measured by his skill at cooking a steak over a flame, many men have a secret inadequacy that they'll share with few people. The truth is, no one is born knowing how to grill. If a guy wants to be an expert at backyard cooking, he's got to learn just like with any other skill.
Grilling is much more than slapping a steak over a fire and letting it brown. In order to be a grill expert, you must learn about a variety of culinary subjects, from equipment to cooking techniques. You can begin by specializing in one type of dish, as many men do with their steak expertise, but every topic you master adds to your skill quotient.
